- Publisher's Summary
- Cereal food engineering has become increasingly important in the food industry over the years, as it plays a key role in developing new food products and improved manufacturing processes. Engineering Aspects of Cereal and Cereal-Based Products focuses on the recent growth in cereal technology and baked foods science, reviewing the latest updates in technological developments in agricultural cultivation and processing for cereal scientists, food engineers, and students. Cereals include a vast number of biochemical entities, very diverse in composition and properties, as well as technological abilities. The text discusses cereal production, which varies according to cultural practices, type of cereal, cultivar, and region. It also addresses transportation, storage, and cereal quality-important at every phase from harvest to production. Chapters cover technological operations such as wet and dry milling and extrusion, and they address particular processing operations that are subject to improvements, including bread and confectionary baking. The text also examines malting, rice processing, breakfast cereals, and pasta. In addition, it explores new trends in cereal-based products and the effects of processing on nutritional and functional properties of cereal products. This book discusses the basic elements of cereal technology, from production to transformation, including the most important processing operations in cereal technology, with emphasis on the engineering aspects.
